Home Visits 101

When it comes to home visits, teachers should be prepared for a few things. First, it’s important to be aware of any potential obstacles that might stand in the way of a visit. For example, if a family’s home is located in a dangerous or difficult-to-access location, the teacher may need to work with the family to find a more accessible venue.

Second, teachers should have a plan for what they’ll do during the visit. This could include getting to know the family’s lifestyle and what their goals are for their child as well as providing support and education in areas like homework, nutrition, and healthy living.

Finally, teachers should be prepared to answer any questions the family may have. This includes being aware of any cultural differences that may come up and being able to provide an answer to any questions about the school or the curriculum.
